    Straight edge all the way. Never needed a serrated when a sharp straight edge was around.

    I have both and lately seeing more combo blades. My super tool has both and comes in handy for those other things like hoses where serated seems better.

    Fine edged and serrated edge blades each have a purpose. I find that fine edge blades are more usefull than the serrated. As for a combo edge you get a knife that only performs half as well as either a fine or serrated blade.
    I have 2 combo edge knives and they live in a drawer of my night stand.

    My EDC is a Spyderco Delica combo blade. I love it.

    With you on that. My dive knife with the combo blade cuts "anything" which can come in handy if one gets in a "tangle" underwater. Where time is always of the essence.
